Official Community Plan

ocp

The purpose of the Official Community Plan (OCP) is to provide a long term vision for the District of Ucluelet. It sets out broad objectives and policies that will guide planning and land use decisions within the District, while respecting the community's existing character. The OCP charts a growth management course that supports Ucluelet's quality of life, enhances economic prosperity and advances environmental sustainability.

The Province of British Columbia's Local Government Act provides the authority and direction for the preparation of the Official Community Plan. Once adopted as a bylaw, an Official Community Plan has a legal status that requires that all subsequent bylaws enacted and works undertaken be consistent with the plan. The 2011 Official Community Plan replaces the previous Official Community Plan, adopted in 2004.
